PEARL DIANNA VEILLEUX
1932 - 2018
HAINES CITY, Fla. - Pearl Dianna (Hebert) Veilleux died from injuries sustained in a car accident on Jan. 22, 2018 in Haines City, Fla. at the age of 85.
Pearl, born on June 21, 1932 in Stockholm was a beautiful, strong, independent woman. She lived in both Maine and Connecticut before retiring to Florida. She worked for Hallmark Cards in Enfield, Conn. for more than 30 years. Pearl also worked at Disney World and Universal Parks in Orlando. Pearl's life revolved around her family, her dogs Brandy and Molly, knitting, and the loving community in Florida where she resided for the past 19 years. You could always find Pearl with a pair of knitting needles in her hand creating works of art for a friend or family. She was an integral part of the Haines City Library Craft Group where she enjoyed sharing her expertise in knitting and crocheting with members of her crafting community. She put love and patience into everything she did. Pearl's beautiful smile and heart touched many lives and will be deeply missed.
